Luke Bryan Says ACM Entertainer Nod Is ‘Winning’ At This Point In Career

Luke Bryan is one of this year's five nominees for Entertainer of the Year at tonight's (Wednesday, Sept. 16th) ACM Awards. He's taken home the title twice, but Luke says that these days he's satisfied with the nomination.

He tells us he's also hopeful that the honor of Entertainer will perhaps go to someone tonight for the very first time. ["The nomination for me is at this point in the game is winning for me. If I can get nominated in that category, from then on I can honestly say if I don't win, well then I'm interested in who did win, and is it somebody that's won before or is it somebody that's never won before but they were very, very deserving to win."] SOUNDCUE (:26 OC: . . . deserving to win.)

Luke will be part of the ACM's opening performance of Entertainer nominees as they do a medley of their biggest hits.

The Academy of Country Music Awards will air live from Nashville on CBS beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
